in the one presidential debate with paul ryan. >> what do you think of this report that a lot of people think the polls of these two candidates are skewed towards obama, so it looks like all these polls show obama is in the lead and there's a report now saying a lot of those polls are underreporting and oversampling democrats. >> the allegation is there's oversampling of democrats. every poll is different, but there seems to be some real unanimity. i think people will be very surprised if barack obama who seems to be ahead by considerable amounts in swing states, especially ohio and florida which romney needs to win that people will be flabbergasted if it doesn't quite turn out that way. the general election poll in terms of the entire nation 39- 47 is almost tied, but in the state swing polls there seems to be a great difference. so there's a real discrepancy. >> fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. the debate airs tomorrow at 9:00. you can watch it right here on fox 5. i'll have the wrap-up on the news at 10:00, the news edge at 11:00. >>> a major victory for democrats today. a judge block
